Amber this was very tasty, although I did make some adjustments to suit our taste. The sauce was not enough to cover the 8 ounces of spaghetti the way we like it so I tripled it which seemed to work well for us. The sauce was a little bland when tasted so I added about 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes and about 1 tsp of chicken flavored granules to make the sauce a little more to our liking. I also used minced fresh garlic instead of the powder and sauted them with the onions and mushrooms. Left out the pimientos, just a personal preference thing. We will be making this again. Thanks for posting.

This was absolutely delicious and needs more stars! I wouldn't be fair in saying that I followed it exactly... I had to change a few things to what I had in the pantry closet. First, I omitted the mushrooms, scallions and pimentos because I didn't have any on-hand. Instead I used sweet red pepper in its place. Then I used 4 boneless chicken breasts cut into strips instead of cubes. And for the liquid mixture, I substituted cornstarch for flour and added 2 tbls. of cooking sherry. My children and husband devoured the meal. Thank-you Tish for a wonderful, easy and quick weeknight meal that tastes like I slaved forever over!
